Why write a blog about the bright side?

I believe there is too much negativity out there in the world. The news is full of disaster, death and grave suffering. I want to provide a place where we can go to discuss and explore the bright side of life. I myself am a born optimist. No matter how bad life can get, I always look for the positive side of things. Call me Pollyanna LOL! There is a great song, called "Always look at the bright side of life" and it was in a popular Monty Python movie called, "Life of Brian". It has a catchy tune, and the chorus persuades us to, "always look on the bright side of life...always look on the light side of life", by Eric Idle. Imagine not being affected by all the negativity in life. Wouldn't it be great to live in a world free of violence and suffering? Don't get me wrong, I know that this world if full of grief and misery, it's just that I choose to avoid it and focus on the positive. I believe that what you focus on expands, therefore, I choose to focus on happiness and joy. Health Canada reports that about 11% of men and 16% of women in Canada will experience major depression in the course of their lives. Mental health is just as important as physical health, and we have to work on keeping ourselves healthy in both body and mind. Combating negativity can only be done by focusing on the positive and my blogs are going to help us do that. I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you and look forward to hearing from you as well.
